A taxi ride out of town, but well worth the trip. There is some beautiful tile work and wood carving, and it preserves a spiritual feel

What an honor to visit the grave of the founder of one of the largest Sufi orders in the world! Bakhautdin rejected mendicant Sufis and instead insisted, "Dil b Youro, Dast b khor!" (Hearts to God, and hands to labor). He is beloved all over...More
